DYCOMS-II Upper Air: NWS Hilo,HI High Resolution Radiosonde Data

Summary

The NWS High Resolution Hilo,HI Sounding Data is one of several upper air data sets collected by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project. Included in the data set are pressure, temperature, relative humidity, U and V wind components, and altitude taken during rawinsonde flights from the National Weather Service upper air sounding site in Hilo, Hawaii. The data set covers the period from 7 - 28 July 2001. The soundings are typically available twice per day at 00 and 12 UTC. NCAR/EOL has performed automated quality control on this data.
